so I just had complete pads, rotors and sensors- front & rear- replaced on my 08 CTT (44K miles). The brake sensor light had gone on and I had been driving with some major squeaky brakes for a looooong time (probably 1.5 years+) So I am thinking, boy, I cant wait to get new brakes and get rid of the squeaking. However, here I am posting this (after doing a forum search)- 500 miles after new brakes installed- crying about font brake squealing. The squealing occurs just when I come to a complete stop; just as I go from 5mph to stop. And its not a simple squeal. Its loud (and it sounds different from my squeaking brakes before the job was done.) I actually get embarrased when I am in traffic. So here's my question: before I drive back to my indie shop who did the work, what do I need to consider? is it the pads? rotors? what is the culprit? the repair guy did tell me that squeaky brakes may not be completely silenced after the brake job but this is ridiculous....I'm at my wits end right now. I could use some solid advice.
Hi, I need to change the rear pads on my 2004 2.7 The question is do I pay for Original Porsche parts or go with an alternative? If I go with an alternative, which ones? I am just a standard diver, no track days. Just everyday use. Thanks for the help.
Hi I need your help choosing what to buy. I have a 997 C2S -05 that the rotors and pads should be replaced on. Should you invest your money in original or go for an aftermarket solution e.g. Zimmerman or a other brand? Brembo is fine but very expensive I want drilled ones but should I even go for slotted? Are there any brand that have coating btw that prevent the discs to rust? Original is 330mm front! Is there any reason to go up in size? Hope for help from you knowledgeable Porsche friends
